Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today. Continue to keep watch over them. Not a day has passed that they have not carried your memory in their heart and thought of you. I'd like to leave a short poem in your honor:

Those who we love and lose
are no longer where they were before.
They are now wherever we are.

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today and every day. Continue to watch over all of them and protect them. I know the daily struggle they face without you and the terrible pain within their hearts. Wrap your wings around them and help them with their grief and let them feel your presence so they know you are near and watching over them. You have not been forgotten.

To The Wife And Children Of Chief.Lucas

I never has the honor to meet Anthony on a personal basis. But from the words of my brothers and fellow law officers his heart was as good as gold and would go out of his way to help all those in need at any time.

God bless you Anthony.Hero's Get Remembered...But Legends Never Die.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

As Father's Day comes I just wanted to let Kyle know that he has the best Father a boy could ever want. I know that you sacrificed all to keep him safe. I hope that on this day he will feel the love that you have for him. We are still thinking of you.
